The Crooked Tree Cashew Fest is this year celebrating its 18th anniversary starting from Friday May 14th to Sunday May 16th. The objective of the annual event is for villagers to promote their products and to bring friends and family together as well as to help raise funds to maintain the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.
Friday will see the choosing of the Cashew Queen which will be followed immediately after with a dance livened by DJ Stone Vibes.
Some attractions this year will include: boxing matches, wet t-shirt contests, mechanical rides, greasy pole, platting the may pole and horse back riding. There will be food straight from the fire hearth to whet your appetite and one cannot forget the highlighting of all things Cashew.
All Saturday and Sunday activities will be amped up with live music from Coolie Rebels and DJ Stone Vibes. There will also be an honorary guest appearance by the legendary Mr. Peters of the Boom and Shine Band. Of course others who also wish to exercise their vocal chords can do so at the sure-to-be fun-filled karaoke contest.
KREM Radio will broadcast live highlights of the Cashew Fest on Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
